Another Not A Most Wanted Poster

This one probably won't be as popular as the adult version, but here's another collage of 15 species. All are in their 1st plumage cycles. All occur in North America. I'm looking forward to your comments. Enjoy!


  1. Thayer's Gull - Bonaparte's Gull - Ring-billed Gull
    Little Gull - Lesser Black-backed Gull - Laughing Gull
    Great Black-backed Gull - Black-legged Kittiwake - Heermann's Gull
    Herring Gull - Mew Gull - Western Gull
    Glaucous-winged Gull - California Gull - Iceland Gull

    2. Hi, Pete. You got the first 3 rows, perfectly. For the last two rows, you guessed correctly for the middle two birds, but here are the rest:
      Western, Mew, Glaucous-winged
      Herring, California, Glaucous

    3. Oh, okay. GWGU has a thicker bill than I thought. For me the Glaucous was a toss up between those two gulls. I did do better than expected, and this is a fun little quiz!
